Lutenist Thomas Dunford’s first project for Warner Classics is a complete Handel programme with his Ensemble Jupiter, and his longstanding musical partners Lea Desandre and lestyn Davies. The album stems from Dunford's desire to bring together these two sublime voices and tell a love story through Handel’s most beautiful spiritual music. During the pandemic, Thomas and Lea went through Handel's entire English-language oeuvre to build a narrative Dunford has dubbed ‘a Baroque West Side Story’. The album features arias from Semele, Theodora, Saul, Susanna, Esther, and more.

The genius portraitist Maurice-Quentin de La Tour had no superior in painting the atmosphere of court and salons under the reign of Louis XV. Notably, he is to be thanked for the beautiful portrait of Jean-Joseph de Mondonville illustrating our album of the latter’s opera Titon et l’Aurore.We can hear harpsichord transcriptions of airs from Titon et l’Aurore in this beautifully clever program conceived by Olivier Baumont, designed around the legacy of de la Tour. It features a selection of "musical portraits", a genre much in fashion in the 1750s, by such composers as Balbastre, Rameau and Duphly.

Installé à Los Angeles depuis plus d’une vingtaine d’années, le pianiste français Jean-Yves Thibaudet a longtemps admiré la violoniste américano-nipponne Midori Gotō, devenant même un de ses amis, mais sans jamais avoir eu l’occasion de jouer avec elle. Après une première expérience d’un récital commun en 2018 avec la Sonate n° 3 de George Enescu, leur duo a pris forme pour aboutir à ce nouvel enregistrement intégral des Sonates pour violon et piano de Beethoven.

The 12 Cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker are celebrating their fiftieth anniversary this autumn! Formed rather by chance after having enjoyed performing a piece by Klengel, the ensemble became quickly famous thanks to its witty transcriptions of classical pieces, stimulation of a dedicated contemporary repertoire for cello ensemble, and forays into pop music. This eclectic collection of the fifty best titles recorded for EMI spans from baroque to contemporary and bossa nova to film music.

Vilde Frang juxtaposes Beethoven's epic, lyrical work with Stravinsky's compact Violin Concerto, which pays spiky tribute to 18th century models. The conductor is Pekka Kuusisto, himself an adventurous violinist; he conducts the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, familiar to the Beethoven orchestral works.

When Vilde Frang programs violin concertos in unexpected pairs, such as her 2010 coupling of Jean Sibelius' Violin Concerto in D minor with Sergey Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1 in D major, or her 2012 disc of Carl Nielsen's Violin Concerto matched against Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, the results are quite fascinating. For this 2016 release on Warner Classics, Frang plays the Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35 of Erich Wolfgang Korngold and the Violin Concerto, Op. 15 of Benjamin Britten, and the works invite comparisons because they are so dramatically different.

Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre was a virtuoso harpsichordist, as well as the author of many pioneering works. She left an abundant output of cantatas, both secular and sacred. Here the soprano Maïlys de Villoutreys, Héloise Gaillard and her Ensemble Amarillis pay tribute to her with the cantatas Judith and Sémélé, inspired by two women, who embody virtue and courage on the one hand, temerity and pride on the other. Whether intimate or more operatic, both works highlight the composer’s innate sense of drama.

The Serbian violinist Nemanja Radulovic has attempted to broaden the appeal of classical music through his charismatic image and innovative programming concepts. He has founded two ensembles of his own to aid in the realization of his ideas. Radulovic was born in Nis, Serbia, then part of Yugoslavia, on October 18, 1985. He took up the violin in 1992, and by 1996 he had won a Belgrade Youth Award. The following year he won the Talent 1997 prize from Serbia's Ministry of Education, and that was followed by a series of youth awards around Eastern Europe and in France.
